@uh8myzen Cool, thanks for the info... By the way, You can probably get back most of your Gnome 2 functionality using the way that triplesquarednine did (see his post above). You can disable the gnome panel, that way you can place AWN at the top of your screen like you were doing in Gnome 2, and still use/try the Gnome 3 shell (the dashboard, or whatever you'd like to call it). It's be exactly as you were in Gnome 2 except you'll have the additional Gnome Shell dashboard (that is if AWN still runs in Gnome 3). Or you can use Compiz in fallback mode. I imagine it allow you to have the exact same setup as you did before! Oh, and check out the gnome-tweak-tool for Gnome 3.


Nautilus can start automatically, however if i do that, it behaves a bit strangely, i think it has to do with the fact that i am usually executing Nautilus using "easystroke" - gesture recognition software.  So, i (for now) am just starting it, whenever i first need to use nautilus.  I will fix this, but i have been more focused on learning all of the new backend frameworks in G3...

About disabling gnome-panel....  I am going to write a guide, that some users (even people who prefer minimal DEs) are probably going to want to check out - especially, if they would like to hack on the gnome 3 stack - to make G3 into an "agnostic desktop environment" or a very lite DE.

It turns out that if you hack on gsettings - like recompiling it's schemas and changing around both gsettings/dconf settings - Gnome3 can be trimmed down at much as you like - in an elegant way, that doesn't feel like a dirty hack, and doesn't require recompiling G3 or possibly causing breakage on future updates -  there are also some real advantages to using gsettings on your system over using gconf, or tools like it in other DEs. gsettings is a binary format, and one of the best features that it provides - it basically uses no context switches, at access time. so when launching apps, or anytime something is referenced from gsettings, there is no extra overhead - which means your schedulers, can be much more efficient. in these kinds of situations...

My system no longer runs gnome-panel at all, all of the universal access stuff is gone, etc. basically, i have rid myself of anything in the G3 stack that i didn't want. updates won't cause me problems either, as all that is required is recompiling the schemas again, and moving /usr/bin/gnome-panel out of my PATH:  When my system starts up, there are no errors in any of my log files - which there had been when using GDM, or my dirty gnome-panel dconf-hack. It's perfectly clean now smile

i start gnome3 from the commandline using startx - it boots MUCH faster than gnome2, or gnome-shell/gnome3 defaults. I don't have to start it this way, but I prefer it. smile

Hey thanks, I might just give that a try after I fiddle around with the basic for a while... I'm gonna try and master it before moving on.

Might as well give it a shot, eh?

Re: Share your Gnome desktop

if anyone is interested, i have fixed and also remixed the logo from Gnome-Tweak-Tool.

the original logo doesn't look good if your Gtk3 theme has a colored or dark background. i edited the original, so that the logo has an Alpha channel (transparency). then i cleaned up all of the edges... - i then decided to remix it, added color, layers, filtering, etc.  the end result is pretty cool. Both the original(cleaned up by me) and my remix (pictured below)

...are available in this thread, with instructions on how to replace it;

Swapped from XFCE to Gnome, quite happy so far. Loving how integrated extensions are.
